About the Session
Diversity defines and strengthens the world around us; it serves as an impetus for learning and it strengthens an organization’s competitive advantage. Our collective uniqueness enriches our world and enables society to flourish. A diverse body of people can offer a wider perspective in virtually any situation and break down barriers that keep organizations from reaching their highest goals. To thrive in the richness that a diverse culture provides, organizations must promote and support leaders who advocate for inclusivity and who possess superior skills, strong emotional intelligence and the fortitude to champion providing the best care possible to all patients. Tejeda is the market CEO of The Hospitals of Providence in El Paso, Texas, and he serves as the chair of the American Hospital Association’s Institute for Diversity and Health Equity. This is a complimentary event; registration is required.
